Not sure why it’s taken so long, but TG Mabel & Main made stunning plus-size rings possible — and we hope status quo standards start changing. STAT! Let’s start this post with a shocking albeit incredibly-truthful reality: most fine jewelers only stock ‘standard’ ring sizes in stores and online, which means that their typical “upper most” is a size 9 or 10 max. Of course, a few exceptions (in mass jewelry retailers) with size offerings up to 13 exist, but it’s rare to say the least. This is why we’re beyond excited to see newcomer Mabel & Main changing up the game and providing brides, grooms, and couples overall with gorgeous rings in sizes 9-24. And it’s not just a single style or two, their entire repertoire is thoughtfully designed with inclusivity in mind. So, whether you’re about to get engaged or starting to look at rings for your wedding, do not sleep on this brand. You’re going to love it.
But let’s think about that for a sec… Not saying that an engagement ring is absolutely necessary for the proposal, but it’s a tradition with staying power and serious sparkle. Without the all-important ask to kick things off, the natural nuptials chain of events can’t really commence. So, there needs to be jewelry for everyone embarking on these big milestones first, well before the dress shopping starts.
Yes, you can absolutely search for ‘plus-size engagement rings’ or ‘plus-size wedding bands’ and pull up some legit-looking results, but the issues/challenges here are multifold: 1) Upon further exploration of x, y, and z sites, it becomes brazenly clear that sizing rarely extends into double digits. 2) The shop-now options for plus-size customers are incredibly limited. 3) Bespoke ring tailoring is usually the only way to go, but requests often lead to judgmental shopping experiences and significant sizing customization fees.
